Screen recorders are a feature we all want and need at some point. They aren’t just useful for taking static screenshots; we can also use them to make videos of anything on our screens, be it a simple video showing how to do something or a full-on presentation. While Apple does provide screen recording capabilities, they are nothing special but AirShou screen recorder offers you a whole range of features. And it’s fully compatible with the iPad, one of the best devices for making videos on. AirShou was once a Cydia app but not anymore. Now anyone with an iPad can download and use it.

Method 2: IPA Installation using Cydia Impactor
Another way of installing AirShou onto your iPad is to use a tool called Cydia Impactor to sideload it. This tool is very useful for installing apps that aren’t in the iOS app store. You will need your iPad and your computer for this method and you do need the latest iTunes version , open iTunes, click Help > Check for Updates.
- Download the version of Cydia Impactor [ext link] that corresponds to your computer operating system , Windows/OS X.
- This will download as a .zip file so extract it and save the files
- Next, you need the AirShou IPA file for AirShou , download it onto your computer
- Your iPad must now be connected to your computer , if iTunes does open, shut it down
- Click the Cydia Impactor icon on your desktop to open the app and click on Menu
- Select the iPad you are using
- Now open the ipa file and drag it into Cydia Impactor window
- Sign in with your Apple ID and password – you can set up a different account for Cydia Impactor if you don’t want to use your regular one
- Click on OK.
- An Expired Certificates message will appear; click OK
- Now let Cydia Impactor do its work , it will get the certificate and sign it and this may take a few minutes to do
- When Cydia Impactor has side-loaded AirShou, the new icon should be on the home screen
- Open Settings > General > Profile & Device Management
- Tap the AirShou profile and then tap Trust so that AirShou can run
If you are using a free Apple ID for this, Cydia Impactor can only sign the certificate for a period of 7 days; at this point, it will expire and you must reinstall Cydia using these steps again; those with a paid developer account will not have this problem.
AirShou Alternatives :
AirShou is a great choice of screen recorder for the iPad but it isn’t the only one. There are two more that offer different features and may be more your style:
iRec is an old favorite, dating back to the early days of Cydia. It did get left behind though, because the developers failed to keep it updated and, eventually, people just stopped using it. It has recently undergone a huge overhaul and now has full support for the most up to date iOS versions, along with full iPad optimization. iRec offers a pretty good selection of features; on top of HD video recording, you can make more out of your video by adding audio too. There are loads of customization options in the app and one feature that none of the other screen recorders has – auto compression. When you save your videos, they are automatically compressed, saving storage space on your device and leaving you free to record as many videos as you want. Interested?

CoolPixel offers a completely different screen recorder experience.

Among the additional features, you get one-tap access to things like subtitles, adding dubbing and much more.
